Can anything good follow the best thing that ever happened
to you?
 


Amelia Weiss loved her husband of thirty-five years very much, but now he’s
left her a widow. Without him, she is unable to work in her sculpture studio
without crying. She no longer has a bridge to her estranged daughter. And she
can’t seem to keep her mind in the present.


 

But when her daughter reaches out asking for her help and her agent threatens a
lawsuit if Amelia doesn’t deliver for an upcoming exhibit, she’s forced to make
a choice. Will she reengage with her life and the people in it—allowing room
for things to be different than they were before? Or, will she remain stuck in
the past, choosing her memories over real-life relationships?

 

Thrust fully into the present, Amelia stumbles into a surprising journey of
self-discovery.
Vicky’s Thoughts:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I found that Twelve Houses well written, and moved at a good and not unbelievable pace. The story was about self discovery yes, but I found it to be about more than just that. It is about love, loss, and relationships in general. I could relate to the character’s, and how they related to each other. We start the story off with loss.. anybody who has lost someone knows how that feels. With loss comes the what if’s, and I wish we would have’s. But what about the what can be?
Then come’s the opportunity to love..
Family
Mother’s and daughter’s.. Hmm what can I say?
While their relationships are not always necessarily the best, there is nothing like the bond between a mother and her children.
 Friends
Without friend’s who would tell us to get off our butt’s and live after loss?
“Why? Why is everyone making me feel stupid when I feel guilty and unfaithful staying there?” 
She’s nearing Magnolia Avenue and slows her speed and she briefly turns to look at me.
“Because your human, because you fall in love when you are supposed to, not when your mind or people’s conviction’s allow it.”
If you are looking for a good book, that can keep you interested, I would definitely give this one a shot. I would say it is definitely a book intended for any woman, who has dealt with loss, or the unsure-ness in themselves. It’s about giving love and being in a  relationships.

On my latest novel Twelve Houses, I tell the story of a
widow who discovers that her life story is far from over. Amelia is a brave
woman who struggles to find her true place in the world and at the same time to
create a life that holds spiritual meaning and purpose.
Though my first book, Borrowing My Mother’s Saints, was a
comedy set in New York, I think both books describe a similar spiritual journey.
The struggles of all of my characters are very important to me, and I love to
hear from my readers about my books.
In my everyday life, I am married, and my husband and I
are raising two sons. We currently divide our lives between San Diego, California,
and Mexico.
